The October wine dinner was fantastic. The dishes the chef creates and pairs are incredible and take the already wonderfully executed regular menu at Chops to another level! The service was exceptional. Cannot wait until next month’s event.

First time here. Staff was very attentive. Wife had the price fixed Salmon which she enjoyed but didnt care for the rice. Also had the crab soup that she liked. I tried the rice and thought it was dry. I had the full rack of the lamb chops medium rare. They were cooked perfectly and tasted fantastic. Best lamb i had in a long time. Subbed the sprouts for the carrots. They were good to. We come to VB a couple of times a year so we will be back for more Chops.

Although somewhat standard fare on the menu, all the dishes we ordered were great, the space (really three different spaces under one roof... a very casual outdoor seating, a casual indoor, and the more formal, white-tablecloth seating in the rear) was great as well, and our waiter, Ian, was a master of service and emotional intelligence, connecting with all diners and providing a personalized service to all the tables he was waiting on. A great respite, within walking distance, from the flip flop, board shorts environment of the beach.

The perfect dining experience. We were greeted by the manager a gentleman from New York. He made our accommodations ideal as we had 2 children with us. Alex was our server, he was so attentive. Our every need was met. The food exceeded our expectations. A definite 5 stars for us.

We were immediately seated at the time of our reservation. Service was excellent. We had a toddler with us and our server got down on her level to speak directly to her. He engaged her and took her for a tour around the restaurant. Gave her mom a break to enjoy her meal. The adults were also attended to with receiving our orders and drinks. Several of us had the special and Pre fix meals. The food was delicious and portions appropriate.

My wife and I went to Chops last night and had the full service dinner for the first time. We’d been several times before for their happy hour bar menu which is a great value. The hamburger and fries from the bar menu during happy hour is almost too good to be true.

But last night we went for the full menu and couldn’t have been happier. I had a Caprese salad with fresh grouper as my entre and my wife had fried shrimp. The tomatoes in the salad were the best I’ve had all summer. The fish tasted like it was caught the same day which is saying a lot because you don’t see local grouper very often at restaurants. The fried shrimp were also splendid.

The best part was the service which was excellent. The owner (or General mgr) stopped by several times to say hello and make sure we had a great meal which of course we did.

This is now one of our favorite restaurants in Va Beach alongside Steinhilbers and La Yaca and being right near the ocean is a big plus for Northenders. Go check this place out.

This was the only restaurant that we could book tonight as all our favorite restaurants were fully booked.
The service, Alex was absolutely first class and polite. However, when I mentioned that the food was cold, his reaction was less than caring. The food, was shameful. The mussels we ordered for starters were almost cold, over cooked and really stunk. Our steak was undercooked and COLD. 5 people and the bill was $400.00 . I was shocked as to how bad the food was. So I guess most locals have realized the poor quality as there were only two tables occupied and probably around 15 tables that’s were not.
If they don’t resolve the quality issues they will go bust. We will certainly never go there again.

The food was extremely slow!! It took over 3 hours for our dinner. Our service was great; however, they couldn’t cook the food. The timing was very disappointing. We made the best of it though! Not sure if we will go back. For 8 people our bill was over $800 and zero compensation was offered for the unacceptable wait time for our food.

I can't say enough positive things about this restaurant. I made a reservation for 15 people on a Saturday night less than a day before we had my aunt's 90th birthday celebration there. I made a note in my Open Table reservation that we were celebrating a 90th birthday and wanted a quiet table. I also noted that two of us were vegan. When I arrived, a long table for 15 was beautifully set for us with abundant space to move around in a quiet alcove. Birthday decorations were on the long white table cloth, making it very festive. A staff person greeted me and asked if I was one of the vegan guests, which I was. She told me what the chef recommended as vegan options from the menu. I had seen online a veggie burger, which she didn't mention. It was not on the dinner menu. Still, she said the chef would prepare a vegan impossible burger for me at my request. My meal was excellent. It included a salad I shared with the other vegan guest. Without asking, they served our shared salad on two plates. They offered a taste of the wine I ordered. These are some examples of the excellent service. All the meat eaters said their meals were also excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Was very quiet because we had an end booth in bar area and bar was not too busy.
Lamb chops were great and steak on 39. menu was great. Vegetables were very barely warm.
We waited way too long between servings and the waitress told us they were busy in the kitchen but the restaurant was barely half full. Chops, you need to work on that. We waited excessively long for one dessert. Waitress again told us kitchen was very busy and my thought is, so, go back and get it yourself...it is at the end of serving this table and you might be blowing a tip.
Overall, we would go back. The manager is great and friendly and wants to please. Waitress was very good but she was not around much through the last half of the meal...she was busy, we guessed. food is basically quite good and I am quite sure if we had complained about cold vegetables, Chops would have taken care of it nicely.
Bread was a rye and just did not fit the restaurant...too much like rye deli tasting.
We will be back!
